Close to Kos Town, this hotel offers a great choice of pools, along with easy access to the beach.
The pools are what really sell this hotel. There are 4 main ones, each with its own draw – for example, one’s adults only, while another houses the splash park. Elsewhere, you’ve got 4 restaurants, including a Greek place.
Location-wise, the hotel is in a quiet spot just a couple of minutes’ walk from a sandy beach. And when you fancy exploring, it’s a few minutes’ drive to the island capital, Kos Town.
Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dinner in the Greek, Italian or pool restaurants. Wine in the Italian restaurant has an extra charge.
Local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks until 24.00.
Snacks at set times.
First Choice Kids’ Club caters for 3 to 11 year olds – so brothers and sisters can join in the fun together. And most of it’s completely free. It runs 5 days a week and – outside of peak season – there are parent and toddler sessions for under 3s, too. For your peace of mind, all First Choice Kids’ Club staff have advance DBS checks and hold NVQ Level 2 childcare qualifications. They’re First Aid trained, and there’ll be at least 2 of them on duty at all times. Plus there’s a strict sign-in and out system.
Travelife Gold is awarded to hotels that demonstrate industry-leading sustainability practice. In other words, properties that are both greener and fairer to the environment, their employees and local communities.
Unfortunately this Hotel has spiolt it for other hotels. I could not find a fault in any department.
The room was very good with a sea view and very comfortable. A short walk to the huge pool.
The one and only problem was the guest with small children letting them run around the restaurants.
There is a big choice of eateries at various venues to choose from.
The ware park was brilliant and no need to go to the restaurants as there is a huge selection at the cafe on the site of the water park.
Most rooms seem to have three beds.
Also if you have difficult in walking they have golf carts which you can ring reception for and they will come and pick you up.More

Absolutely fantastic holiday. Massive lagoon pool, always plenty of sun loungers. Food was varied and plentiful. Plenty of helpful waiting staff, nothing too much trouble for them. Themed nights in restaurants, so you could choose which one you preferred. Italian and Greek needed to be booked in advance.
Entertainment was first class, the Palmera entertainment team put on excellent shows in the evening. They also organised the sporting activities during the day, but if you say you aren't interested they leave you alone. Special mention to Callum who organised the young activities during the day, our granddaughter Layla loved his activity sessions, and even though she was only 5, and the age ranges were varied, he always made sure she everyone was included.
The waterpark was great, plenty of different sections which catered for different age ranges up to the bigger slides, all supervised by the lifeguards. The gyros at the waterpark were lovely, lots of selection of food and salads, drinks both hot and cold, and the ice creams were welcome in the hot sun.
The rooms were great, we had a bath with a shower in it, good water pressure. Rooms were cleaned every day. The whole resort was exceptionally clean.
Very quiet area around the hotel.More
18 of us perfect time ..bit over crowded
Perfect pool,food, friendly staff -love this place. They try to pack too many people in which is the only down side. It is expensive as entertainment is not as good as other places we've stayed and can sometimes be totally dull or over bathe top. That's only a slight Moab though as we all loved it here and would poss return in a few years time. - beach is snit pants but very local More

Excellent dietary provision......
Stayed at the Blue Lagoon Resort Lambi for a week, all inclusive in early October. I had visited the hotel around 10 years ago when it was much smaller and wanted to return. We arrived in the early afternoon via coach transfer from the airport and asked to leave our bags on the coach and check in. there was around 20 people to check in from our coach which made it a quick process and we received our room key and all inclusive wristband in around 10 minutes. Our luggage by then was lined up in front of the hotel where the porters were waiting to take us and our luggage to our room on a buggy. When we were taken to our room it was clean and tidy, small bathroom and a balcony overlooking the pool which we had booked. The section of the pool which we overlooked was at the back of the outside area of the main dining room.
Once we had checked in we went to reception to obtain the key to the safe in the room which was charged at 15 euros. We had also emailed the hotel in advance regarding food intolerances within the party. We were asked to go to hotel relations where were met by a very knowledgeable member of staff who knew our room number and remembered that we had emailed ahead. She offered us an appointment with the chef that evening when he came on shift to discuss dietary requirements and to complete some paper work for the hotel. At every meal time the chef would come out and guide us through each dish as to what could and couldnât be eaten. Every chef at all the restaurants were very knowledgeable on each individual dish, knowing if they contained gluten or dairy, also offering alternatives that were made fresh. Soya milk was available as well as gluten free bread, pizzas and pancakes for breakfast, although you had to wait a little longer for these but never a problem whilst on holiday. This was the first holiday abroad since knowing about the food intolerances as was our one concern, but it neednât have been. They couldnât have been more helpful with it!
On each day we had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel. For breakfast there is a fruit, cereals and hot offering. The fruit section has a number of yoghurt options in big bowls. The yoghurt and strawberry was excellent, this was also offered the next day however the strawberry was actually raisins. The yoghurt with tomato was a strange combination! Fish fingers for breakfast on the hot counter was an odd choice. I didnât have the hot option throughout the week due to choice however my wife did and she said it was excellent. Lunch was served at the pool side restaurant where there was a plentiful choice of grilled meat, salads and pasta/rice dishes. There was always fruit on offer for desert alongside the cakes or other deserts. Evening meal was served in 1 of 3 places â 2 of these you had to book. These had to be booked at breakfast and there was a theme night in each to help you to choose. We alternated between the 3 restaurants but found all to be well staffed with waiters taking drinks orders and clearing plates away. Sometimes the drinks were cleared away when you went to get food which was amusing! Each evening meal was set out in the same way with soup and bread available for a starter then the main meals were displayed in covered heated trays. Pasta and rice was available with all meals and chips were available on each day. On Greek night you were welcomed with Ouzo as an aperitif. Drinks were included in the all-inclusive package with all meals and all day from the outlets throughout the resort.
The main pool of the hotel âthe lagoonâ was huge and very clean. This was open until 7pm and once people had started drifting away in late afternoon 2 people came to clean around the edge of the pool and return the sun loungers back into order. There is several sections of the pool to sit round and plenty of sun loungers available all underneath a parasol. You can collect a drink from the bar in a plastic cup and on a regular basis one of the team comes to collect the cups. At 10am each morning the entertainment team start their daily programme. This always started with a song when the whole team dance around pancake island which is in the middle of the pool. The morning activities ranged from water aerobics in the pool to crazy golf or beach volley ball in the aqua park area. All of the dayâs activities are displayed on a boards around the resort. This programme ends around 12pm after âgame of the dayâ in the pool and this is when the entertainment team have a few hours break. They are back at 3pm however to start the afternoon programme for a couple of hours. In the afternoon volleyball in the pool and water polo seemed to be the popular games however in the height of summer I guess it would be even more popular. In the evening there is a kids disco in the main theatre, face painting (at 845pm) for the kids and then the evening show starts around 930pm. The shows lasted around 1 hour and were âjourney around the worldâ, âdisneyâ, âdecadesâ â all of which were excellent fun, well put together and good choreography. On the last night we were there was the comedy sketch show and this was the worst show we saw which was rather disappointing especially as all week it was on the board as Broadway night. Iâm glad it wasnât the first show weâd seen as I donât think weâd have gone the again! It was a huge shame as it was nowhere near the standard and choreography of the other shows.
The Thomson reps were helpful and knowledgeable and always on hand to give advice if needed. We hired bikes on one day and this was arranged through the reps with no fuss and the bikes arrived on time and in good condition from the company.
To the side of the resort is a little shop which sells postcards, small souvenirs, crisps, sweets and drinks. It also sells some English newspapers. On the opposite side of the road is the other part of the resort â âaqua landâ which has a football pitch, basketball court, 2 tennis courts, beach volleyball, crazy golf and the aqua park. We only visited the aqua park on 1 occasion however again, this was clean and well maintained with a small lazy river around an island which had a few small slides, a shallow childâs pool and at the far end 4 bigger slides for the more adventurous.
Overall, a great place to go if you want a relaxing holiday in the sunshine, not have to think about catering and chill by the massive pools!
We would definitely return againMore
